Despite having been initially reported as an isolated incident, a migrant gang sex attack on a 12 year old child on Sunday was actually the second at a pool in the same city in two weeks.
In Cologne, the city of the infamous New Year’s Eve attacks, a 12 year-old girl was sexually attacked by migrants on Sunday. Six migrant men touched the girl in a way described as “indecent”, and police have told the German media that they are investigating the matter on suspicion of sexual abuse, reports Spiegel.
Now serious questions will be asked of the management of the pool, who promised just two weeks before they would be investigating the situation after the father of another two young girls, aged 10 and 12, came forward to complain about abuse. Cologne’s Express reports the previous attack at another pool in the city managed by the same company was a “similar case”, suggesting the same group of men may have been returning to the baths to prey on young girls.
The migrants from Sunday’s attack were taken into custody by police shortly after the young girl escaped their clutches and ran to a lifeguard, who took care of the “frightened” child. The 12 year old claimed that the six men had cornered her at the end of a water slide causing a jam, and then seized the opportunity to put their hands into her bathing suit.
